Civic Center Eyes Changes After Student Harassment Report

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The Rushmore Plaza Civic Center is looking at policy changes after some students reported having beer poured on them.

It happened Jan. 24 at a Rapid City Rush hockey game. A chaperone says students from the American Horse K-8 school in Allen were subjected to racial slurs and had beer sprayed on them.

Investigators say they’ve identified a main suspect who exhibited poor behavior during the game and others who might have been involved.

The executive director of the civic center tells the Rapid City Journal ( ) that some of the center’s alcohol-related policies and practices will be changed.

The proposal includes setting up a family section where alcohol is prohibited and also requiring suite owners to identify people who will be responsible for the room every time it’s used.
